Matching TV Show Titles for Data Validation

Illustrating a Television for Data Validation of TV Titles

We have a lot of clients in the TV industry and one problem we’ve come across, again and again, is the inconsistent naming of TV shows. Whether it’s the same show being broadcast on multiple channels or comparing live TV schedules against VOD and OTT video services, everyone seems to have a different way of spelling TV show names.

In order to help fix this problem, we’ve developed a reference solution with a list of around 17,000 TV shows that can be used to standardise naming conventions and ensure that there is only one name for any show on your TV platform.

Using this data validation solution, we’ll match shows like “Game Of Thrones S1” from your VOD platform with “Game of Thrones” on your live TV platform. We’ll match “Coronation St.” with “Coronation Street” and “Marahajah Lawak” with “Maharajah Lawak” - each of which we’ve seen in real life customer data! Thus ensuring all your TV data have data integrity.
